SECURITY

Security is built into everything we do

TurboTax works hard to safeguard your information so you can file worry-free.

Safeguards every time you sign in

Multi-factor authentication
Securely access your account by entering your password and a unique, single-use code we'll send your trusted device or email address, or answer a series of questions.

Touch ID®️
Your one-of-a-kind fingerprint password gives you access to your account on your smartphone via the TurboTax app.

Protecting your personal info

Data encryption
We encrypt any of your data that we store, and when we
electronically send your return to the IRS or state agencies,
we use SSL encryption that exceeds IRS standards.

Auto email notifications
We’ll notify you of changes made to your account,
such as updating your payment method, changing
